REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to transfer $619,010 from ALI C23002 (School Building Assistance) to ALI C23018 (STEM Facility Assistance Program) within Fund 7032, and to release capital funds in the amount of $1,203,933.00 from fund 7032, ALI C23002 (School Building Assistance), in FY18, for master facility plan approvals and amendments for four school district construction projects.  
  The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) respectfully requests Controlling Board approval per 3318.04 ORC for an Expedited Local Partnership Program (ELPP) master facility plan amendment for Licking Heights Local School District, Licking County, for a state share of $1,361,973.00. No state funds are required at this time. Upon Controlling Board approval and completion of the construction project the school district will be issued credit to be used once they enter OFCC's Classroom Facilities Assistance Program (CFAP). This would create a future liability for the state.

OFCC requests Controlling Board approval per 3318.04 ORC for Master Facility Plans for the Talawanda City School District, Butler County, and the Warrensville Heights City School District, Cuyahoga County, for their participation in the Classroom Facilities Assistance Program (CFAP). In addition, approval is requested for Master Facilities Plan for the Bio-Med Science Academy, Portage County, for the participation in the STEM facility assistance program.

A transfer of funds is also necessary for this request because when bonds are sold, all of the funds are put into the School Building Assistance Program capital line. When funds are needed for any other OFCC K-12 program, in this case the STEM program, a transfer of cash within the fund is necessary.

The description of how these funds will be used is as follows:

RELEASE OF FUNDS
Overall, there are 4 districts receiving funding (see attached chart):
2 districts are being served under the Classroom Facilities Assistance Program (CFAP)
1 Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM)
1 Expedited Local Partnership district (ELPP) Amendment no state funding needed at this time

The amount to be released for each project is limited to the amount anticipated to be spent during the fiscal year. Depending upon the timing of design and construction, the OFCC may request the release of additional funds from the Controlling Board later in the fiscal year, or in future fiscal years. Releases in future years may require appropriations in the next capital biennium. The attached list shows the current release amount requested for each of the districts.

APPROVAL OF PROJECTS
The attached list shows the state and local shares and other information on each of the 4 projects which require master plan approval. These school districts require approval by the Controlling Board upon conditional approval by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission, pursuant to ORC 3318.04. These districts all have obtained their local shares and would then proceed to sign new or amended project agreements with the Commission.

The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission passed resolutions approving these projects on October 26, 2017.
